Chelsea FC vs. Arsenal FC: English Premier League Scores, Tips 10/29/11

Normally speaking, when Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC get it on, there is a heck of a lot of hype surrounding the Premier League scores for the game. Though this is going to be a heated battle on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, there is a sense that, at best, these two are competing to be the best team in England outside of the city of Manchester, as both Manchester United and Manchester City are clearly head and shoulders above the pack.

For Chelsea, it is sitting in a comfortable third place on the Premier League table, and there is really no doubt that it is going to be competing in the Champions League again next season. That being said, the Blues are also only a point off of the pace of Manchester United for second, but they have already been smashed by the Red Devils once this season.

The Blues suffered a defeat that they probably won’t live down last week on the Premier League scores, as they were beaten 1-0 against Queens Park Rangers in a match that should have been relatively easy for a road fixture. For a team that is blowing through its first round of Champions League action and is already into the fifth round of the Carling Cup, the defeat was a shock, as it was just the first setback of the season not against Man U.

There is no doubt that this team is good enough to knock off anyone and everyone in England, especially here at Stamford Bridge. Frank Lampard already has four goals this year, as does Daniel Sturridge. Petr Cech, now totally healthy after missing a few weeks with a training knock two months ago, is still one of the best goalies in the world, and in spite of all of the off the field questions revolving around John Terry, he is still a fantastic captain of this team and is one of the best defenders in the game today.

The Gunners were probably left for dead a few weeks ago, but they have almost eerily quietly rebounded to get back within just a few points of European contention for next season. Since a vicious 8-2 thrashing at Old Trafford, Arsenal has played tremendously better football, beating Swansea City, Bolton, Sunderland, and Stoke to reach 13 points on the campaign. There is no longer a fear of relegation, and there is even a renewed sense that perhaps a deep run in the Champions League could come as well.

Thus far in three fixtures in the UCL, the Gunners have themselves seven points, including a tremendous road victory at Olympique Marseille last week.

Robin Van Persie has been in fine form as well in recent weeks. He netted a two bagger against Stoke City in a game in which he was used off of the bench in more of a gut shot call by Manager Arsene Wenger, which now gives him a tremendous seven goals in 10 fixtures in the Premier League schedule.

These two teams have understandably played each other quite a bit in recent years in cup matches and domestically. The home team won both meetings last year, with Arsenal winning 3-1 at the Emirates and Chelsea winning 2-0 here at Stamford Bridge. In 2009 though, the Blues swept this series, outscoring Arsenal 5-0 in the two games in the process. The last win for the Gunners on the road in this series came by the count of 2-1 in November 2008.

We’re fully prepared to make our Premier League tips on Arsenal in this one. It is catching a full goal on the Premier League odds, and we would even fancy in its form, that it has a decent chance of cashing the 5 to 1 odds that it can take all three points from this match.
